Everett Citizens Foundation Announces Grant Awards

Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce the award winners from the first round of grants decided by the Everett Citizens Foundation.

The Host Community Agreement between the City of Everett and Wynn Resorts established the Everett Citizens Foundation. The Foundation received its first annual payment of $250,000 under the Agreement in July of 2019. The Foundation is charged with supporting local groups, associations, and programs with important City initiatives.

Encore Boston Harbor’s Eric Kraus joined Mayor Carlo DeMaria and the Everett Citizens Foundation committee for the first-ever check presentation on Thursday evening, Feb. 6, in City Hall. The Foundation was created through the Host Community Agreement and is funded by Encore Boston Harbor. The Committee gave out $150,000 to several local organizations.

Applications were accepted from local groups, associations and programs to support important work in the city. The maximum annual grant award was capped at $10,000.

“With the highly successful opening of Encore Boston Harbor, community groups and programs will now receive $250,000 each year as part of the Host Community Agreement that I negotiated in 2013,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria. “I am pleased that this funding will support the great work of so many right here in Everett, and I urge all who are interested to apply.”
